Testicular torsion is a highly time-sensitive event for a patient and the survival of his testicle, and therapeutic nihilism about testicle survival after six to eight hours is widespread, resulting in unnecessary orchiectomies, Dr. Mellick says. Some torsed testicles are salvageable even at 24 hours, sometimes longer, but the clock is ticking the minute the retracting cremasteric muscle starts the spermatic cord twisting. Does that mean an immediate attempt at manual detorsion should become a standard of care? Dr. Mellick explains in this month’s video and blog. Read more at http://bit.ly/Mellick.

Many types and etiologies of headache and facial pain afflict ED patients, and sorting through them can be a challenge. Craniofacial experts themselves, in fact, do not attempt to remember the subtle differences between the various conditions causing craniofacial pain, but instead refer to the third edition of the International Classification of Headache Disorders, says Larry Mellick, MD.

This video shows a 9-year-old boy who crashed his motor bike and had a concussion, forehead contusion, and broken nose. A month later, he was still experiencing pain in his forehead, but rather than go right to CT or MRI, Dr. Mellick tried a different approach. Read more in Dr. Mellick’s blog at http://bit.ly/Mellick.
